Medical Necessity

Modern Assistance utilizes Magellan Care Guidelines for the determination of Medical Necessity. These criteria are applied in the context of other critical issues, such as an individual’s psychosocial needs, desired outcomes, access to community resources, and coordination of care between behavioral health, physical health, specialty providers, and other systems of care. The goal of these criteria is to promote recovery from the symptoms of mental illness and substance use disorders and to support the Member’s stabilization at the highest level of functioning.
